That one time I got a Clueless tribute tattoo...
So I've been planning this tattoo for an eternity. Clueless is my favorite movie (along with one other, which will be commemorated shortly!) and I knew I wanted something silly and awesome. I had the idea in my head to do Cher's fluffy pen and a tube of lipstick, because I mean, that's totally Cher. And no Clueless tribute would be complete without an ode to the party song of the whole thing, right? I know I'll get the epic side-eye from so many people for it, but I'm seriously over the moon. I love it so much. Richie at Kustom Thrills here on the East side did it and it's perfect in every way. Pop culture tattoos are some of my favorites...
Yesterday was a total "Mike and me" day. We hit up a few of our favorite stores (but had minimal luck), ate some mexican food, and left with a nice (delicious!) haul from World Market. We started watching the show "Wilfred" on Netflix (with Elijah Wood, not the Australian original) but we're totally loving it. We're only 2 or 3 episodes in (of the 11 available) but if you haven't seen it, we definitely recommend it!
dress is from modcloth + shoes are c/o oasap!
Phew! But last night... it was such a treat! We set up Honeybean at the Native issue launch party for September, and it aligned perfectly with the monthly art crawl here in Nashville. We were at the Brick Factory at Cummins Station and it was a nice new environment that we were both totally unfamiliar with. We had no idea how busy it'd be or if anyone would even show up, much less come in our shop, but we were truly surprised. Not only did I get a chance to meet several amazing blog readers (Sonica, Louisa, and a few gals whose names I'm not sure I got!), but we also met so many talented and interesting people with such great stories. Lauren made an appearance which is always wonderful, and I finally had a chance to meet (in person -- the other) Lauren! And Kristi dropped by, too! Ahh, I love seeing familiar faces. So many well dressed people and the icing on the cake was how many people were tickled pink by Honeybean. Mega thanks to everyone who stopped in and an even bigger thanks to everyone who took home a little piece of the 'bean with them! We're definitely looking forward to setting up at many many more Native launches (just not the October one because you know, wedding stuff. psh.)
Obviously since I was at the 'bean from 8pm til 1am I didn't go to work. It was weird to be out and about on a Saturday honestly. It's been such a long time since I've had a weekend night free, and it hasn't been a regular occurrence in 6.5 years! I've got a thing or two to learn about being social okay?! haha We towed Honeybean home and jumped back in the car to head 2 hours south to my hometown. Toby stayed with my parents this weekend while we did biz stuff so we came down to celebrate my Nana's 80th birthday! Like most 80 year olds, she celebrated her birthday by getting a Facebook. Hey, it's 2012!
I'm looking forward to taking it easy and enjoying a slower pace today. I know I'll be back at it in my office tomorrow but I'm excited because I'm feeling sooo productive! A lot of things are on the agenda this week, including some much needed friend-time. Hopefully some wedding crafting, too. I'm a bit proud at how much we've managed to get done for the wedding in the past few days. Mike's outfit is complete (we think!) and some food has been arranged and some party favors, too. Is it silly that I'm slightly sad that it's so close to being over, mainly because I've only now begun? Ahh, bittersweet!
Hope you're all having a great weekend! If you're in the US and celebrating Labor Day weekend, please be safe! Well, that kind of goes for everyone anyway :P
